The past two episodes of The Flash have brought on some exciting and terrifying new developments for fans, to say the least.

After what started out as a pretty dull season with the first few episodes, season 2 of the DC TV series has put the show’s pacing and story back into hyperdrive, bringing back the same kind of dynamic and high-paced energy that made fans fall in love with in the first place. This week’s episode featured what might be one of the greatest sequences of the series up until this point too, as Barry finally went head-to-head with Zoom, the dangers multiverse speedster of this season, who not only defeated Barry without even breaking a sweat, but also dragged his limp body around Central City, flaunting his victory to anyone who could see. Oh, and he also crippled the Scarlet Speedster, making our lead protagonist lose all feeling in his legs.

It was awesome, and terrifying… but mostly awesome.

However, it looks like this week’s episode is just going to bring about even more problems for Barry and his friends though, as Gorilla Grodd is set to make his return this season, and with Barry in no shape to take the telepathic gorilla on, things definitely aren’t looking good for Central City next week. The first official trailer for the upcoming episode has premiered online as well, and it gives viewers their first look at the villain’s highly-anticipated return. Check it out below:

Here’s the episodes official synopsis:

“Grodd returns to Central City and kidnaps Caitlin. Barry and team race to find her before it’s too late. Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) plans his first date with the new barista at Jitters, Kendra Saunders (guest star Ciara Renée) and Patty (guest star Shantel VanSanten) begins to suspect Barry is hiding something from her.”

Grodd will supposedly have a very King Kong-esque relationship with Caitlin in the episode as well, and considering the last we saw of the character was him jumping from building to building in Central City, it looks like he’s still got the same presence and ferocity that made him so terrifying last season. The character remains one of the greatest technological achievements of the series so far as well, and it looks like the effects are just as good, if not better, than they were initially. After two incredible episodes back-to-back though, I look forward to seeing how “Gorilla Warfare” stacks up to its two predecessors.

The Flash airs every Tuesday night on the CW.
